“The “High Impact Recruiting” program was great. I had looked at several training programs, and am really glad I chose this one. Paul did a great job of tailoring the material to the needs of the group and was very willing to answer questions both inside and outside of the training sessions. The program was definitely worthwhile – very interactive and informative. The program format provided great material to apply weekly without overwhelming us with all the material in one session.”

Brooke Freeman, Recruiting ManagerStrategic Vision Consulting

“I found the High Impact Recruiting Series to be very beneficial.  I enjoyed the ease of the webinar format, and Paul does a great job keeping the information interesting and engages the student rather than just lecture the entire time. I think that the program is particularly relevant to those recruiters who are looking for new ideas beyond passive recruiting (job boards, etc.).”

In response to a LinkedIn inquiry about books on recruiting:

“I’m going to guess this is for a recruiter trying to get more tips/tactics? There are several I have personally read, and they are relevant to the current age. Some books, while good, have been out longer and might not be as relevant (i.e. Winning the Talent Wars – Bruce Tulgan – Although still a great book! The others I referred to are: 101 Strategies for Recruiting Success by Christopher Pritchard, Proactive Recruiting (In a War For Talent Economy) by Paul Siker

PS – If you ever have the opportunity to go to a seminar by Paul Siker, drop whatever you are doing and go see him. Brilliant and captivating is all I can say.”
